Like we’ve said before, when it comes to strawberries, simpler is better.
Strawberry Caprese Salad
- 4 ounce goat cheese log
- About 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
- 10 or so basil leaves torn
- black pepper to taste
- extra virgin olive oil to taste
- balsamic vinegar to taste
Pop the cheese in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up. Cut into 1/4 inch rounds and spread out on a plate, tucking strawberries and basil in between each cheese slice. Crack some fresh black pepper over the top and drizzle oil and vinegar around the side for dipping. Serve as a dessert or appetizer.
NOTE: We opened the cabinet to find we had no balsamic and it was still wonderful without it. Splurge and use your good oil! We can’t be the only ones with our everyday extra virgin olive oil, our just for salads oil and our only for special occasions oil.
